“Yes, yes! Speak truth to power!” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) enthusiastically agreed when left-wing activist David Hogg declared that rich people are “the problem” in America, but are using “racism and xenophobia to convince poor people” that they’re not.

On Tuesday, Hogg tweeted his accusation about the rich:

“For hundreds of years rich people have used racism and xenophobia to convince poor people that rich people are not the problem.”

Later that evening, Rep. Tlaib chimed in on Twitter, exclaiming her agreement and posting a bullhorn emoji suggesting that Hogg’s condemnation of the rich should be broadcast to the far and wide.
